Re: Looping in 4th Grade

Yay for teachers!  My 6th grade music teacher brought in someone
with an ARP 2600 (I think).  I remember seeing a lot of patch
cables anyway.  The next time I saw an ARP 2600 was in an
elective music studio class during my brief stint in college.  I
was definitely fascinated by the 6th grade music experience and
heartily encourage all teachers of any kind to follow that
example.   8^)
